advisory board and also was president clinton how usual is this cell that we're hearing about? >> you know, candy, while there is a discussion, there was a statement put out by the emirates, we don't know very much about the details. typically the emirates is an infrastructure place, right? it's where they provide support, the terrorist groups look for support that counter pro live rag, banking. we don't often see operational terrorist cells and that's what makes this different. the emirates has a capable counterterrorism force and work very closely with saudi arabia and we have to presume that there was real cooperation because the targets were supposed to be in the emirates and saudi arabia but we don't know much beyond that. >> you know, i want to get this quote exactly right. this is from the official em rate news agency and materials aiming to conduct terrorist attacks. so this is not a region that you want people exporting material and equipment for terrorist attacks. how concerning is that part of the operation? >> it's very concerning. in fact, the statement itself suggests that th
dollars in deficit spending last four years. president says let's go back to the clinton levels of taxation. if we went back to the clinton levels of taxation we're still double the highest bush era of deficit spending still because spending was accelerated so much in 2009 and 2010. we're trying to bring the spending levels back down. on the contrary if we just brought the spending levels down to the clinton level spending instead of tax level going up to clinton level of tax it is would solve this. we're trying to solve the debt and deficit. we're trying to say how do we get out of debt. the president is saying let's get past the fiscal cliff and let's keep moving on. that doesn't solve the problem. what solves the problem is reducing spending and get our spending back down so our nation is back in balance again. jon: is it mostly medicare and perhaps social security that are the drivers of the problem in your view? >> it is everything that's on the table. when you look at our discretionary spending, how much that was accelerated through the one-year stimulus program to be done

hillary clinton continues to be treated for a blood clot in a new york hospital. we'll have an update on her steady recovery this morning. good morning from washington and happy new year. it's wednesday, january 2nd, 2013, and this is the daily rundown. i'm chris cillizza in for chuck todd today. one nightmare is over, but could last night's deal be a warm-up for more brinksmanship in 2013. just after 11:00 p.m., the house did approve a bipartisan senate bill to avert sweeping income taxes on most americans and delay some spending cuts. the measure passed 267 to 167 with just 85 republicans joining 172 democrats to vote in favor of it. key parts of the deal include, income tax rates going up for the first time in two decades. rates will rise from 35% to 39.6% on incomes over $400,000 for individuals and $450,000 for couples. the bill also delays automatic cuts to the pentagon and domestic programs for two months. and 2 million unemployed americans will continue to receive jobless benefits for at least another year. the congressional budget office estimates the bill will add nearly $4
clinton and the congressional republicans. it seemed at that time it was advantage president or whoever it was in the white house. is that the same sort of scenario we're seeing right now or is it possible for this president to overplay his hand? >> i think we're defining dysfunction down. i mean, the willingness -- maybe we will get an 11th hour agreement that avoids the fiscal cliff, but it will be a fairly minimal agreement. nothing like a big comprehensive deal. especially the republicans are having difficulty making the compromises you need to move forward in what is a very closely divided society. what is the alternative? you have a republican house but a democratic president who will be there for four years and a reasonable prospect if hillary clinton runs in 2016, a democrat will hold the white house then. what are we waiting for. in 1997 even, when a democratic president was reelected along with a republican congress, they said none of us are going away, we have to make a deal. that's not really happening yet. >> so tglass is half full for you? >> i think it can still happen, b

haven't seen that in 30 years. we go back to paying the taxes when bill clinton was president of the united states and the economy was a hell of a lot better when bill clinton was president than it is today. i don't think the fiscal cliff is all that bad a deal looking at it from the point of view of a progressive democrat. it's not perfect, but i worry about ceos that are funding fix the debt because, you know, they got us into this in the first place. i don't have a lot of faith in their ability to get us out. one more thing, you know, if there's a deal between the democrats and the republicans, i guarantee you the democrats and the republicans will make out just fine. i'm not so sure about the american people. >> governor rendell -- thanks governor dean for that one. i want to pick up on something you said about kicking the can down the roads. one of the things that had been an issue had been taking the debt ceiling conversation off the table. republicans want to keep it as a point of leverage. it sounds like it's not going to be part of whatever gets negotiated. doesn't th
it with the birchers, we saw it in clinton's first term in '94 and we saw it again when obama became president. this is how the republican base reacts when w a twist. and the twist was they had to explain how barack obama, this radical anti-american socialist got 53% of the vote. with clinton in '92, they could say he only got 43% of the vote. so the explanation was george w. bush gave conservatism a bad name with reckless spending, too many compromises with democrats, bailouts, all this sort of thing. and so the answer was we have to reclaim conservative purity. that means opposing the democrats, opposing obama. that spirit, you can still see it. >> it is such an important point and it goes to something ben was saying in the last segment, which is the notion of legitima legitimacy. you're talking about the legitimacy of a democratic victory and the legitimacy of the democrat republicans who are held responsible. how many republican primaries they were involved with. christina donel beat mike castle. rand paul beat trey grayson. we had shang angle beat sue louden. those were all in 20 10. i do

, we had great generals, mcarthur, patton, iciz eisenhow j.f.k., clinton, they all had unfairs. what do you say to that? >> well, i don't think the idea -- the problem is that general petraeus had an affair. i think the idea and the big problem is that he was director of the cia and he walked into right into one of the most blackmailable situations you can have. it's good the u.s. found out about it before the russians or chinese. it's not that he's a general messing around, and according to the code of the justice that's not allowed. >> teetering on the edge of the fiscal cliff with just 36 days to go until tax increases kick, in the white house and congress are playing a high stakes game of let's make a deal. >> only in america believes there has to be this what i believe to be really farce ical now surely -- the nature of the world is very fast moving, america has huge economic problems, heading for another fiscal cliff, everyone laughing at you from afenway park the american public sick and tired of all the games going on and there are you, grover norquist, a very bright guy still r

controlled for 40 years as well. there were rare occasions. president clinton massed nafta, the free trade agreement in 1993. the majority of republican votes for it and democrats against it. it's only 20 votes, but that is the difference between boehner getting what he wants and not. if he loses, he can only lose fewer than that in january. he needs a bill that commands a lot of democratic support. >> people say it will be one of the most powerful people. it will be more powerful because she has the upper hand and she knows it. she will have to deal with it at least 75 to 100 votes. >> and again the marks sustain this idea of okay, this new more moderate congress coming in and these voices will be put down to a degree or will we see dire financial implications off the bat? >> the lesser because even if they managed to harsh out the small deal that president obama is putting forward, this is deficit increase that we are talking about. none of these cuts will be offset. all of the spending will have to be accounted for somehow. the stage is set for an ugly plan. >> only in america! trivia t
